hurricane katrina. they saw all of the dead bodies afterwards. >> steve: if this was a republican president do you think that the main stream media would handle it differently? the president's photop in new jersey is now in las vegas. >> eric: i love chris christy and he did victory laps with president obama and for fema, but where is fema? i am in favor of letting the states handle all of these things. but if you are going to do victory laps and say fema is the greatest institution in the last four or five years, they better be here. i haven't seen anything. not a thing. it is a disaster over there. >> gretchen: we have much to discuss this morning! in the meantime a fight for -- >> steve: fuel. >> gretchen: you know beha, we have so much to tuke about. >> steve: gas line in new jersey two miles line. >> gretchen: and the obama administration failing to call in back up as four americans attacked in libya. we'll continue to focus. did the white house leave them to die? former army chief-of-staff jack king is here to react. >> steve: media bias exist and proof is in the numbers and we have g
were calling it the katrina factor the other day. the bush administration, they're not terribly effective response to hurricane katrina shadowed the rest of the bush presidency. it certainly contributed to the democrats taking the congress in 2006. besides the huge humanitarian cost, which resulted, no president wants to be seen under responding to a storm. that, besides the fact that you want to safeguard the american public, would suggest there would be a big response from the obama administration. there is only so much to you in do. a storm like this in new york, that is something we have not seen for a long time. there is certainly the earth -- possibility for people to say, rightly or wrongly, that the federal government did not respond appropriately. i have not seen any signs that any major figure in the republican party is trying to do that. unlike when some people immediately decided that hurricane irene would be the obama katrina. a couple people, including newt gingrich, suggested a quick response this time was at odds with the respond." pose -- at odds with the respon
the team. we led the team that won the pulitzer for -- for hurricane katrina in biloxi. hurricanes are very unpredictable. when you first have the path coming up hugging the coast, maybe turning eastward out to see, now move that pressure -- to sea, now move that pressure system that will turn it in over our heads in d.c., you know, you don't know what's going to happen. particularly with nine days out to the election, these days are crucial for the campaigns to get out on the road, hit the swing states. those states that are going to be critical in deciding the next president. so this tosses a lot up in the air. >> brian, stand by for me. we created this pictures here. we put together -- we're showing the campaign layers, if you will, impacted by the storm hitting the east coast. so you know, we're already seeing, as you mentioned, some of the campaign events across the country for romney or boom delayed or canceled. we are expecting huge travel delays in addition to impacting millions of travelers. the campaigns may have to do last-minute maneuvering. also a major storm hitting the most d

just a few moments ago that this is similar to what we saw during katrina. >> that's right. hard to grasp. >> homes on fire. >> and then you've got homes on fire. you saw it in new orleans with katrina. these just spontaneous explosions involving homes. and unfortunately, you've got all this water, and firefighters and first responders can't get that water -- >> yeah. to use it to put -- >> to put on the fire. it's a dangerous situation for them. and this is exactly what the mayor was trying to warn people about. don't put your first responders in danger. but this is the situation here. we're going to have much more of our continuing coverage of this superstorm. next. cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? 100% new. 100% mmm... wow, that is mmm... it's so mmm you might not believe it's a hundred calori

. while we are going down the streets, it reminded me of what we experienced in 2005 with katrina. fortunately in this city, no one has died. there are no confirmed injuries. that is the good news. but it certainly looked like new orleans. what also looked like new orleans, when you looked in the windows. what we saw in the windows were children, mothers and fathers, waving at us, in most cases smiling. people on balconies waving at us. why were they smiling? what they've seen is the water receding. that's the good news, it's gone down from yesterday. the reason they can't get out of their homes is because the water not only is four or five feet deep, but there are also believed to be live power lines in the water. so it could be fatal to walk outside your house. spirits seem good but it was sure strange to see people in their windows, stuck in their homes with no power whatsoever, no heat and in some cases not a lot of food or water. we also saw people who seemed a little disoriented and confused and were trying to get out of their homes. in one case i saw two people trying to dr
with katrina, if the federal response is sluggish or looks unprepared for this, that's a worse damage to the president than anything else, and i think that the president has to do this. he's canceled four events in four states over the next two days. right now he's scheduled to go to green bay at the end of the tuesday. we'll see if that happens. probably unlikely. he may start again on wednesday when he's supposed in ohio. >> although to his benefit you could argue in some of the key states, places like new york and new jersey and connecticut, they're very strong governors there who are experienced with this stuff and unlikely to fumble the response. we'll see how that goes. let's bring in congresswoman marcia blackburn, a republican from tennessee. what impact do you think this storm will have to the presidential race? >> i'm not certain that it's going to have any direct impact. i will say that our thoughts and prayers are definitely with everyone and with the elected officials that are dealing with this response, with the emergency responders. i think that one of the things that p
